2 Quick Answers:

Some questions have come through recently that I decided I should probably address:

1. Why isn’t [My Small Temple] On the infographic?

I have modeled most of the small temples at this point. There are more than 40 of them, and if I put all of them in the infographic, it would be longer than the server could handle. It might even crash your browser. As is, the image is 1,000 Pixels tall, and nearly 20,000 pixels wide!

2. Why isn’t [My Large Temple] on the infographic?

Because I have not made it yet! On average, I can make 1 model a week. Though with really detailed temples it can take a month. This means I will add between 30 and 40 temples per year. It does not mean I don’t like your temple, it just means I have not done it yet!

The future for this LDS Temple Infographic

I hope to be able to make an updated version of this graphic around this time each year with updated info, corrected stats, and new temples. There are also plans for other Infographics focusing on other aspects of the temple.

    1. Jake, as I commented just below the infographic, if it’s not in there, it’s because I have not made a model of it yet. I know everyone wants to see “Their” Temple in the graphic, but I can only make about 1 temple model per week. (These are not flat 2D models, though for the graphic they have been rendered that way.) I started this seriously just a little over 2 years ago, and have only completed 90 models (Mostly small temples.) I will get the others done, eventually, but it will take time.

      In an odd related not, I was actually working on San Diego at the time you made this comment. There is a significant amount of detail to replicate for San Diego, it will be 3 weeks before it appears on the site at a minimum, but It should appear in this December’s version of the InfoGraphic.

      1. Hey, no problem. I was just curious about how/why you decide which temples to do, and in what order. I assumed (hoped?) San Diego would be one of the first twenty or so, merely because of its uniqueness — though maybe that makes it harder to do?

        Either way, keep up the good work!

        1. Nah, not that simple. At first I was only going to do Pending temples, ones under construction, as a guess to what they were going to look like. But I had already don 80 temples for Google Earth, that were a simpler quality, and I found I could convert those to high quality fairly simply, so those are the ones I had been working on next. The ones I did for Google Earth were done using some tools that Google created for the purpose, and depended upon where they had multi-angle Ariel photography. At the time, the multi-Angle Aerial photography did not cover the portion of San Diego that the temple was in, so I never did San Diego. Google Closed the tool down a while back, but before they did, I went through and made simple models of any temple thay had the photography for (It updated over time) and San Diego was one of them. So It’s getting done now.

    1. Only because I had not made models of any of them when I made the infographic. Making the models is a long process. I am currently working on a model for Manaus, and another for Curitiba, so they will be in this December’s infographic!

  1. Great work on the info graphic! :) One small suggestion for your next version… adding in a temple from down under in Australia. Outside of USA we have the most temples in a county… though not as exciting to look as Nauvoo, San Diego, Manti, Vegas etc

    1. Chris, Thank you, I enjoy doing this! Technically I am already representing Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne in the small temple sections, as the temple of placed looks rather identical to the ones they are standing in for. The infographic would become to big if I put in all the small temples.

      While Australia does have a lot of Temples, having 5, Canada has 8 (+1 under construction,) Mexico has 12 (+1 under construction,) and Brazil has 6 (+2 under construction!)

    1. Portland and Las Vegas both share a floor plan, but it is a modified version from the 12 listed For example, the entryway is on the side instead of on the end, and both those temples have an assembly room on an upper floor, whereas the other 12 have neither. Consequently, when I model them, they will share their own spot.

  2. One of the best infographics I’ve ever encountered — really fantastic. Thank you for the countless hours of work, maybe somebody can lend you server resources for speeding up rendering.

    1. Well, then I would have to speed up the modeling process! Right now Modeling and rendering are about evenly matched, mainly because of the high detail I have been putting into models lately. That said, watch for an update to this infographic later this year, possibly this month!
